Functionally, this is similar to how the Nanopulse weapons work, but it only functions while the sword has energy absorbed and only for that particular energy type.

The new set sword doesn't have this feature, but it has the ability to fire the absorbed energy as a ranged attack instead.
Okay, so you're saying that the Lobi Sword is a Lightsaber and reflecting back the attack. And the Tholian Reputation Sword is a Gunsword and you can choose when to unleash the attack.


Dunno about you but seems like the Tholian Sword is the better deal since it's funner and you don't have to mess with Zen and Lockboxes to get it.

I do love the reputation sword, it feels good to use and using the shattering harmonics attack is just plain awesome! Please don't change it I like it how it is :3
As someone who has 2 manned KAGE, 3 manned IGE and CGE, got 8:50 left on the clock (we've since beaten it) as our IGE Speed Run time, been here longer than my join date suggests and put in the effort to learn the game for myself, I would like to put it to you that I know what I'm doing.

I will enjoy getting hold of my laser sword from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which everyone knows is where laser swords are from.

Hmmm, guess it would be an insult if my Ultimecia toon used this.

Hmm, makes me wonder if BOFFs could use them to that effect?


Of course it would mean grinding out Nukara a hundred times to do so.
